TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3301:

I have mentioned before that my 'free reading time' is somewhat limited, due to on-site projects for clients, home-office web projects at all hours, and also social networking via my laptop and now my Droid!

So when I get a book, heavy with 'copy', like the one pictured above, it takes me a little time to read it all, and then possibly blog about it, if I find it blog worthy...

I met the main author of this 'pulp mag' format book during the recent 2010 Long Beach Comic Con, (LBCC), at the Silver Comics booth.

That author would be Michelle Bryson, who is pictured in the top left photo, and then with her publisher, Johnny Ortiz in the lower top photo at the left.

I've blogged about Johnny's Silver Comics line several times before, as seen in this link, but this is his first pulp mag style publication to see print.

I know that comic books have their 'roots' in the pulps, and I have read some during the years, but it is comic books that have been my main emphasis in collecting.  That's because even in the 1960's comics were a lot easier to obtain than pulps when I was younger.

However, this 'pulp' was based on 'The End', a character that I had already read a couple of adventures of his in the 'Silver Comics' series of comics, so I thought I would give it a try.

I normally don't blog about non-comics publications in this Blog, as it is titled: 'ComicBookCollectorsBlog.com', but the cross-genre nature of this publication merited at least a mention at my New Facebook Fan Page if I didn't blog about it.

I found that reading it was a pleasure.  Michelle 'paints' the pictures in my mind about what is going on in the story, even though it isn't an illustrated graphic novel.  Good job there, Michelle!

Plus, a famous comic book artist, Frank Brunner, has several illustrations of his interspersed in the text pages.  I haven't seen his work for a while, but it brought back memories to me of his works on other titles I've enjoyed in the past, i.e. Dr. Strange in Marvel Premiere, Howard the Duck, and Red Sonja to name a few. The illustrations are printed in black and white, to fit the 'pulp' format style.

In addition to the main story, there are three more stories. One by Dennis Rau, and then two by Dan Beltran, both with illustrations by Dan Beltran.  Those were also good, and made this a total package worth reading!

This is a well rounded publication, and more than worthy of blog mention! The format is in 6" x 9" softcover book format, and the front and back cover illustration definitely grabs the browser's attention when first seen. 

However, for YOU to purchase this book, you'll have to order it directly from Johnny's publishing company.  The cover price is astounding for what is presented... only $6.99 + shipping!

That is, if YOU don't see him at a comic con near you.  I'm not for sure of his con schedule... So I suggest you check out the web site for Silver Comics, plus become a 'member' of the Silver Comics Facebook Group Page, which I have already done!

As to my 'comic book grade' for this 'pulp mag', I'm going to rate it a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 as it chock full of stories and illustrations, and worth the purchase if you are into pulp mag style of publications for reading!

My thanks to Michelle Bryson for bringing this publication to my attention at the Long Beach  Comic Con!  AND to Johnny Ortiz for publishing another quality publication!
